World Organisation of Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE) Members' delegates play a crucial role in supporting the mission and purpose of the organisation.

This site supports Member delegations by clarifying responsibilities and providing relevant information. Furthermore, this site provides information on approaches the region is taking to better coordinate among Members.
